Windows node fails to communicate with Chef server (linux)

2, from workstation given an command

root@OOOOOOOO:~# knife winrm ‘XXXXXXXX’ ‘chef-service-manager -a install’ -m -x ‘Administrator’ -P ‘OOOOOOO’
XXXXXXXX Service ‘chef-client’ has successfully been installed.

3, If chef client is not installed in Windows node and give the knife winrm it fails
4, if chek the status

root@OOOOOOOO:~# knife winrm ‘XXXXXXXX’ ‘chef-service-manager -a status’ -m -x ‘Administrator’ -P ‘OOOOOOO’
XXXXXXXX State of chef-client service is: running
